Inactives for @Steelers: QB Jones, WR Bryant, RB Archer, CB Webb, OL Johnson, LG Foster, NT McCullers— Bob Labriola (@BobLabriola) September 21, 2014
Once again this week, RB/WR/KR Dri Archer won't be active after he suffered an ankle injury against the Cleveland Browns. Receiver Martavis Bryant still doesn't look to be completely healthy, but his poor play in the preseason may factor into him not being active for a third week.
After being listed as questionable on Friday's injury report, Guard Ramon Foster will not suit up against the Panthers. Even though Foster isn't considered the Steelers' top offensive lineman, having Cody Wallace in the starting lineup is a downgrade from Foster.
If anyone is shocked by the fact that Daniel McCullers, Chris Hubbard, Wesley Johnson, and Landry Jones won't be in uniform Sunday night, they shouldn't be. None of these four will be given a hat until injury forces them onto the active roster.
Three weeks into the season, the Steelers are lucky that they're fairly unscathed on the injury report and, of course, they hope to keep it that way against the Panthers on Sunday Night Football.
